Israeli occupation authorities yesterday released female Palestinian journalist, Bushra al-Taweel, after holding her in administrative detention for 11 months.

Last November, the Israeli army arrested Al-Taweel at the Yitzhar checkpoint,

Her father, Jamal, who had spent 20 months held in administrative detention – without charge or trial – in 2019, went on hunger strike to protest his daughter’s illegal detention.

Twenty-seven-year-old Al-Taweel is a Palestinian journalist and activist who reports on Palestinian prisoners detained by Israel.
